Valkyries (Japanese: 戦乙女) are powerful female warriors of Schicksal who have high Honkai resistance and who either have natural or artificial stigmata. Due to the constant exposure to the volatile Honkai energy and Honkai Beasts, many Valkyries are at risk of losing their lives not only in battle but due to the possible Honkai cascade as well, which is a phenomenon when a human with mild adaptability is corrupted by the Honkai and turns into a zombie, mindlessly seeking to destroy humanity.[1][2]

St. Freya High is a school for Valkyries founded by a former Valkyrie Theresa Apocalypse who was originally its principal. The Valkyries are ordered into ranks: S, A, B, C and D, with S being assigned only to the most powerful Valkyries, Valkyries with rank B and higher being deployed to frontlines[3] and D being used for Valkyries who stay in the HQ and do chores, support and logistic duties far from real fighting.[4] The Paladin rank, the Overseer's chosen, also exists as the personal guard of the Schicksal Overseer, currently Otto Apocalypse.[5] Valkyries are also grouped in squads for missions.

Although Honkai adaptability is uncommon in men, it can happen in rare cases and these men can become the Knights of Schicksal.
